Principal's Message

Principal's Welcome


Dear John Muir Language Academy Community,

It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome you to a new school year at John Muir Language Academy.  Once again, I am honored to have the opportunity to serve and lead a school with such committed staff and families who value a rich and global education!  For those of you who do not know me, I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty years.  I have worked with a variety of students ranging in age from preschool through eighth grade.  Prior to coming to John Muir Language Academy, I worked at The Language Academy, a Spanish and French Immersion PK-8 School where I served as Vice-Principal.  I continue to be excited and eager to bring my skills as an instructional leader to John Muir Language Academy and work with you as a partner in education to ensure the success of all of our students.

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of commitment and success established by John Muir Language Academy by building strong relationships with parents, staff, students and community partners.  We will continue to focus on character education initiatives, standards-driven instruction, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous yet differentiated manner so that we can continue to increase the achievement of every student even in an online learning environment.

Although 2020 has proven to be a challenging year, we will continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections.  As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-feel welcome and are excited to be here!  This attitude will enable us to meet the challenges of this year as we reach academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.  My door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to call or email me directly.   

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at John Muir Language Academy meet their goals and have a successful school year!

Best Regards,

Silvia Herrera-Flores
John Muir Language Academy
